The Legacy of Roman Philosophy, Law, and Citizenship
Carlin MacCorkleon 2 October 2012
Transcript of The Legacy of Roman Philosophy, Law, and Citizenship
Legal codes of the modern day in European places such as France or Italy are based off of the Ancient Roman laws. These Roman laws covered lots of things like marriage, inheritance, agreements (contracts), and so on. As for justice in Ancient Rome, the Romans did not treat the poor or slaves the same as rich people. The emperors would make laws just because they could. Also, the Roman people believed in a universal law of justice that had come from nature. Everyone had rights because of this natural law. Roman citizenship How did a person claim roman citizenship?Anyone that had parents that were citizens of Rome were citizens, and any child of a freed slave was also a citizen. Sometimes but very rarely a whole town could be granted citizenship for one person’s great deed. Auxiliaries (An auxiliary force is a group affiliated with, but not part of, a military or police organization) that were in the roman army were given citizenship after they retired. All citizen’s are treated equally and followed the same law. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Who_could_claim_roman_citizenshiphttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auxiliaries Ancient Rome: Stoicism
